Art, Creativity, Photography, Travel, Writing

WELCOME to my sanctum and to the “Where Bloggers Create” blog party hosted by Karen Valentine of My Desert Cottage.

This is the first time I have participated in this event so I would like to explain a bit about my blog.:

My blog has evolved over the years into a travel blog although it started with journeys of all sorts and experiments with writing. Lately, because I never seem to be in one place for more than a couple of months at a time, it has become a documentary of my real life journeys and my journeys into the world of digital photography and the editing of many of my photographs into new versions of their original selves. I have moved into the digital age more out of necessity than anything else as it is not practical to lug around my stash of mixed media bits and pieces. For my digital work all I need is my laptop and my two cameras.

When we are not on the move we return to south western Turkey, to my studio, my place of preference, where I can pick up again on my mixed media creations.

It is the place to which I can retreat when I need some me time, where I am surrounded by art – mine

some of my early jewellry pieces. The piece in the bottom left corner is a wall hanging made for a friend out of some bits of broken jewellry she gave me.

introducing Scampi, a street cat we feed when she deigns to visit us and a constant source of inspiration

there’s a wealth of flowers for inspiration

this was the view, with Greek islands in the distance, after a couple of days of heavy rain. Usually it is nothing like as clear as this

the winter sunsets are fabulous.

Thank you for visiting my little corner of the world. I hope you have enjoyed it and I hope you will return, I am always adding new posts.
